How do air fresheners work?

Jun 04,2021 / Industry News / Author: ShengKui

Air Fresheners Work:- Air fresheners and deodorizers that come in aerosol form frequently contain petrochemical propellants such as butane, isobutane and propane--all of which are neurotoxic at high concentrations. The tiny droplets that are released into the air when you spray an aerosol don't just disappear. Though you can't really see them, they are easily inhaled into the lungs, where they can irritate airways, especially among children and asthmatics. They are also highly flammable.air freshener spray manufacturers

These propellants, along with the fragrance chemicals in air fresheners and deodorizers can irritate the skin, eyes or airways. For example, ethyl alcohol is a mild eye, skin and respiratory tract irritant. Limonene is an irritant and sensitizer, which means that repeated exposure can result in an allergy to the substance. Camphor, common in solid air fresheners, is another irritant capable of causing headaches, shortness of breath, weakness and central nervous system depression. A particularly nasty ingredient in air deodorants, paradichlorobenzene (a pesticide also used in moth balls) is an eye irritant and, according to the National Toxicology Program (NTP), possibly causes reproductive effects and cancer.
